Sell out We Will Rock You production at Plympton Academy

Sell out audiences enjoyed the production of We Will Rock You in the new Performing Arts block at Plympton Academy recently.

The musical is based on the songs of British rock band Queen and tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown.

“I wanted to create a rock experience where we would really explore the potential of the audio visual equipment and open up as many opportunities to students both in performance and production,” said Director of Performing Arts and Director, Jo Crook.

The production included 20 songs, complex dance routines and some technical wizardry.

“Everyone involved has worked incredibly hard through long cold evenings and weekend rehearsals. They have shown real resilience, drive and team spirit in putting this together,” said Jo Crook.
